Stitch From Stash - August


Well SFS is past the halfway point.  It's all downhill from here.  Once again, it's time to report on the Stitch From Stash challenge coordinated by Mel at Epic Stitching.  At over the halfway point, I think I've done pretty well.  The idea of SFS is to stitch from our stash to reduce spending. 

I also look at it as a way to focus on reducing my accumulation of stash.  Actually it's fun to "shop" from our own stash.

During the month of August, I spent $8 on Button Up For Christmas #2 by Victoria Sampler.


No finishes since last month, but I did pull out Eight Immortals have been working on it all month as part of a online stitching challenge.  For the month of August, we are stitching on something with people in it.  Since I hadn't worked on Eight Immortals since February 2013 *gasp*, I thought it was appropriate for this challenge.  I've made quite a bit of progress:


I made more progress on Heart of America.  Since the weather has been so humid lately, HoA has become my lunch hour project.  As you can see, I'm 2/3 done.



I'm really enjoying stitching both projects.

Until the next SFS,
